    Ideal weight for impressiveness


    The best bench I ever got was 235x12. what weight would this seem to be impressive to you in your opinion. I am 5'11.

    Not sure what you mean by "impressive"? Most women could care less about bulk. They want a mildly muscular guy with some abs and an ass. In fact, most women are actually turned off by bulk...

    if you are doing sets at 150% your body weight that is pretty good. so at 180lbs you'd need to be doing reps with around 275

    I know the ladies like their guys to be strong, but I'm not going to tell them what I bench. No, no, no, because they could care less. I'm going to nonchalantly put myself in a situation to show my off my ass so they can stare in awe at the amazing level of development I've achieved with it. All those years of squats and ass presses finally payed off!
